Twelfth Night, said by Orsino, Act I, scene I.
Music is my mistress, and she plays second fiddle to none.duke ellington
Music played a large role in the survival of the black people in America — that and a sense of humor that just couldn't be enslaved.redd foxx
At one point, I didn't care. Now I want as many people to hear my Music as possible.The Weeknd
“Ah, Music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic beyond all we do here!”J. K. Rowling
I am sure my Music has a taste of codfish in it.
It's not Music you would use to get a girl into bed. If anything, you're going to frighten her off.David Byrne
Pop Music is probably the only art form that is totally dependent for its success on the general public. The more people buy a record, the more successful it is - not only commercially but artistically.
Rome stuffs its ears when it hears thee; the world reviles thee. I can blush for thee no longer, and I have no wish to do so. The howls of Cerberus, though resembling thy Music, will be less offensive to me, for I have never been the friend of Cerberus, and I need not be ashamed of his howling.henryk sienkiewicz
"Art, and, above all, Music, has a fundamental function, which is to catalyze the sublimation that it can bring about through all means of expression. It must aim through fixations which are landmarks, to draw [one] towards a total exaltation in which the individual mingles, losing his consciousness in a truth immediate, rare, enormous, and perfect. If a work of art succeeds in this undertaking even for a single moment, it attains its goal."iannis xenakis
I believe that the use of noise to make Music will continue and increase until we reach a Music produced through the use of electrical instruments which will make available for musical purposes any and all sounds that can be heard. Photoelectric, film and mechanical mediums for the synthetic production of Music will be explored.john cage
A few weeks ago I read, in Sacheverell Sitwell, two impressives sentences: “It is my belief that I have informed myself of nearly all works of art in the known world.... I have heard most of the Music of the world, and seen nearly all the paintings.” It was hard for me to believe these sentences, but I wanted Sitwell to be able to say them, liked him for having said them I believed.Randall Jarrell
Every father is given the opportunity to corrupt his daughter's nature, and the educator, husband, or psychiatrist then has to face the Music. For what has been spoiled by the father can only be made good by a father, just as what has been spoiled by the mother can only be repaired by a mother. The disastrous repetition of the family pattern could be described as the psychological original sin, or as the curse of the Atrides running through the generations.carl jung
[Bandleader Hartley] apparently believed that Music could be more powerful that physical force in bringing order to chaos.steve turner
Tarab Music itself can be emotionally experienced outside the immediate ecstatic and interactive ambiance that originally led to its creation.
The Music, and the banquet, and the wine The garlands, the rose odors, and the flowers, The sparkling eyes, and flashing ornaments The white arms and the raven hair the braids, And bracelets; swan-like bosoms, and the necklace, An India in itself, yet dazzling not.lord byron
To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no Music, no choreography and the dancers hit each other.
The ballet embodies the notes of Music . And sometimes you almost feel like you can see the notes dance up there on the stage.
In a ballet performance there are typically no words spoken from the stage. The dancers must tell the audience the story (if there is a story) using only their body movements and gestures , which they execute to the accompaniment of Music . Often mime is used to relay specific elements of the story.
Simplest of blossoms! To mine eye Thou bring'st the summer's painted sky; The May-thorn greening in the nook; The minnows sporting in the brook; The bleat of flocks; the breath of flowers; The song of birds amid the bowers; The crystal of the azure seas; The Music of the southern breeze; And, over all, the blessed sun, Telling of halcyon days begun.
The effect of Music is so very much more powerful and penetrating than is that of the other arts, for these others speak only of the shadow, but Music of the essence.Arthur Schopenhauer
Like Music my drawings transport us to the ambiguous world of the indeterminate.
Yoga is like Music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.
